Dear Husky Lover, As you know the Siberian Husky is a very special breed of dog, and we use the phrase 'dog' very lightly. They are wonderful companions and excellent hunters. They enjoy the hunt for small game as in rabbits, mice, snakes, and other small rodents. They are very curious, and love to play; chase is a favorite. They run in packs, as do their ancestors, the Wolf. They do display a lot of the wolf characteristics, except they are very kind, timid, and are not normally an aggressive breed at all. They adjust and adapt very well to almost any situation and climate. The Siberian Husky loves cold weather and is very adaptable for cooler climate. You will find that your new Husky friend is very intelligent. They seem to be able to read your moods and behaviors; they seem to know just what you need from them and when. Another very good point is that they are very well-behaved indoors. They are not a clumsy breed indoors at all; it's as if they tip-toe around everything very concerned that nothing is broken or disturbed. Even with their very fluffy tails, they prance around knowing that they are to be careful. They love to be loved, especially by young children; they play very gently with them, almost as if they realize that this is a very valuable part of the family. The Siberian Husky does not bark as do all other breeds, but they howl,(or we call it singing), to let others know they are here and just for general information to other wild life. They also love to talk; it's not English, of course, but you will understand. They also love to dig; they get great pleasure out of digging a nice size hole. It's not all for pleasure, though. The hole also serves a purpose; they will lay in the hole when the weather is very warm. The damp soil helps keep them cool. We have provided a small pool for this purpose. They drink and are able to cool off all at once. If the digging is a concern to you, a great suggestion is do what we have done. We have a load of top soil brought in and placed at the back of our property every Spring. Then on the weekend, we all fill in holes. It's great fun, and you're also spending time with your pet in its environment. All Huskies have three layers of hair (which explains their adaptability to cool climates). Huskies molt, or shed, this hair twice a year. You can remove the hair by purchasing the proper under coat brush or by taking your pet to a groomer, and there they will have the appropriate tools to remove the unwanted hair. It is very important to remove this unneeded hair especially in the summer, because your pet could overheat if the old coat isn't removed. Most other breeds shed all year around, so don't get discouraged over the molting process. Huskies love to run and play tag, so please keep this in mind. They need adequate running room to assure they get the proper amount of exercise required. Please remember they are not happy on a CHAIN (would you be?). Our puppies are AKC Registered and vet-checked by Dr. Gore at the Elizabethtown Animal Hospital, which includes all worming and all necessary shots for this age. Mother and father are on the premises for your viewing. All puppies are fed a dry, high protein food, which is very important for proper development. They have plenty of fresh water which puppies seem to drink a lot. The puppies live in what we refer to as the 'nursery'. They have music which is relaxing for them. Their bedding is changed and washed twice daily. The ceiling fan is turned on to help ventilate the nursery. They potty outside. They have a doggy door which leads to a large fenced area, which is scooped twice daily and sprayed down. As far as providing adequate comfort outside, we have set up dog houses and put fresh straw in every week. This serves as bedding as well as comfort. Straw is distributed around the houses as well as the yard to help try and keep the area dry during our wet periods. All puppies are very clean; they have no lice nor fleas. We provide lots of raw hide for them to chew on as well as wood blocks. The raw hide is good for their teeth; it helps to remove plaque and promotes strong teeth. It also helps keep the puppies from chewing on you. If interested, email me at the address below, or you can call at (502)737-6265. If no answer, please leave message.
